Why can't I get pregnant????

Well I've decided to start a journal of my TTC story. I am 29 and my DH is 32. We have been TTC to conceive for almost 2 years. We were married May 15, 2004 and have been TTC since then! We tried for a year on our own and then went to a RE where I had a full workup only to be told I have "unexplained infertility." That is the most frustrating thing about this entire process. Nobody can tell us that there is anything wrong but yet I can't get pregnant. So we tried Clomid/IUI for three cycles (didn't work), follistim/IUI for 3 cycles (didn't work) and one cycle of IVF which also didn't work. I know the first cycle of IVF is difficult because the Dr. is trying to get which dose of which med works best for you but it was still upseting. We only had one embryo make it to transfer day and it was only an "OK" embryo according to the doc.

So now I am currently waiting for AF to arrive so I can start a new cycle. I am on Lupron 10 units and will probably start stims on Saturday. I am also taking a Mind/Body program for fertility which starts tonite. I'm really excited for this because I am going to meet other women in similar situations and hopefully learn to deal with the stress of TTC in a positive way.

So that's it for now. I'll post later about my class tonite!

Well I started my MInd/Body program last night. It went really well. I like the Dr. who is running it and all of the women seem really nice. We'll see how it goes.

On another note, AF started today so I will be starting my follistim on Saturday. So on to a new cycle that will hopefully be more successful than the last.
